Our Story

Making a Difference Since 1969.

Terros Health is a nonprofit, behaviorally-led whole health, integrated care provider with specialization in trauma-informed mental health, physical health, addiction recovery and wellness interventions. Our compelling purpose is to Inspire Change for Life, and last year we helped more than 53,000 Arizonans on the path to better health and an improved quality of life. Our mission is to create healthy communities while meeting our triple aim of excellent patient experience, quality health care outcomes and controlled health care costs.

Terros Health has grown over the last 49 years into a company employing more than 1,100 professionals across the greater Phoenix area, Tucson, Flagstaff, Prescott and Kingman. Our employees exude our values of integrity, compassion and empowerment while providing a continuum of care that spans primary care, mental health care, substance use disorder treatment, wellness services and residential treatment. We serve individuals and families in comfortable and welcoming environments in 11 locations, and we are dedicated to meeting the needs of a person’s mind and body.
